Dodgers place Van Slyke on 15-day DL with back inflammation

DENVER (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers placed outfielder Scott Van Slyke on the 15-day disabled list with back inflammation. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly thought Van Slyke's recent back issues were taken care of until an at-bat during Saturday's game in St. Louis when Van Slyke experienced mid-back inflammation on his left side. Van Slyke is hitting .264 with two homers and 14 RBIs...

Dodgers 5, Marlins 3: It’s Scott Van Slyke’s World

Zack Greinke pitched a gem through six innings, but he ran into trouble in the seventh. Marcell Ozuna tied it up out of nowhere with a bomb of a homer to left, which is what hitters like him do. Then two consecutive singles and a walk setup a bases loaded situation and Scott Van Slyke heroics. It was a really really really close play, but it seemed like he was out by literally...

Dodgers @ D’Backs August 27, 2014: Scott Van Slyke’s Best-Case Scenario

You know me, and you know I put very, very little importance on pitcher-vs-batter stats. One pitcher doesn’t face one batter enough to generate any kind of real sample size, and even if you could, that means that it took place over so many years as to render most of the data irrelevant. Dodgers D’Backs 6:40 p.m. PT Phoenix, Ariz. 2B Gordon ...

White Sox @ Dodgers June 2, 2014: No Really, Scott Van Slyke Is Playing Center

I know we talked about this just a few hours ago, but apparently it’s not a joke: Scott Van Slyke really and truly is starting in center field. Oddly enough, none of the beat writers have had a lot to say about the situation yet, so we don’t know what went into Don Mattingly‘s decision, or what Matt Kemp thinks, or — and probably the most interesting — what Van Slyke himself...
